Experimental Result Behaviour of exotic titanium isotopes confounds expectations 27 February 2018 To probe 'closed shell' effects surrounding elements with 32 neutrons, a team at TRIUMF produced exotic, radioactive forms of titanium and weighed them with the ultra-precise mass spectrometers at TRIUMF’s Ion Trap for Atomic and Nuclear Science (TITAN) facility. 
Experimental Result TRIUMF's (ultra)cool experiment fires up 20 November 2017 After a 4-year installation period at TRIUMF, the transpacific TUCAN collaboration reported the production of the first ultracold neutrons in Canada on Monday, Nov 13, 2017.
Experimental Result Canadian-led investigation akin to antimatter forensics 03 August 2017 The ALPHA Collaboration has reported the first detailed observation of spectral lines from an antimatter atom, opening a new chapter in antimatter research.
Experimental Result TRIUMF joins forces with Saint Mary's University to characterize the nuclear force 30 June 2017  A research paper published in Physical Review Letters is offering new insight into unraveling the mysteries of the strong nuclear force
Experimental Result A custom-made revolution for isotope beamlines 26 April 2017 The ARIEL facility reached a milestone in December 2016 with the successful installation of a 15-metre prototype of the Rare Isotope Beam (RIB) transport system.
Experimental Result EMMA passes her first test 31 January 2017  In December 2016, EMMA  achieved a major breakthrough when it was tested for the first time with a heavy ion beam.
Experimental Result CERN-TRIUMF collaboration opens new avenues for particle acceleration 23 January 2017 On December 10, 2016, members of the Advanced Wakefield Experiment (AWAKE) at CERN announced a major milestone in the pursuit of a novel particle acceleration method, proton-driven wakefield-based acceleration
Student Stories TRIUMF PhD Student Awarded Marie Curie Fellowship 28 October 2016 Alexander Held is a Physics PhD student at UBC who is a member of the ATLAS group at TRIUMF. He recently began an AMVA4NewPhysics Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher fellowship at CERN. 
Student Stories Past and present FYSRE Award winners at TRIUMF 08 September 2016 The First Year Summer Research Experience (FYSRE) award in honour of Erich Vogt is a scholarship for students who have completed their first year in University. The 2014  (inaugural) recipient Walter Wasserman and the 2016 recipient Linh Phan were both at TRIUMF this past summer.
Experimental Result Beta-NMR finds new antiferromagnet behaviour 11 July 2016 Scientists working at the βNMR facility identify a new phenomenom in the near-surface behaviour of an antiferromagnet.
